    I suspect CbadRider has less problem with climate change than with the kind of magnetism it exudes... I mean it really does draw in some scary opposition and some inane back and forth.

    Yeah I've heard other West Coast riders agree with you. It's amazing how our cycling experience can be so different based on climate (...I bet you don't have any bar mitts :))

    As regards bicycles, 2 is probably about right for an every-day rider. It's good to have an extra one to let repairs take their due course.
